I'm looking to learn about Air Motion Transformer technology
No, I don't need to clutch at the shape of an impedance curve. I clutch at the fact to make an amt, you take ribbon basic design and fold it. I've not argued differences. And once again you turn smart aleck.

Ok the shape of material? AMT is folded. Impedance on  both are quite flat. Flow of current varies by the source of opposing force on both, we call these magnets. Radiation patterns are effected on both by mouth shape, horn load felting etc.  Don'...

Yes, regardless of the smart aleck,  it is a ribbon.

Any way you look at it, the transducer on amt is a ribbon that is folded.

Most on here will most likely disagree with me about amt vs ribbon tweeters.  They do have separate patents, but that doesn't dismiss the FACT that they are different applications on a similar design.  An AMT is a ribbon that has been folded.  Thi... 
Pass Labs int 250
I know that Audio Doctor is recommending a product that they sell,  but I have to agree that the CSIB is at least a comparable product to the INT250.  Most people know that the Coda boys were engineers for Nelson.  Their products are excellent.  I... 
How Do You Deal With Baffle Edge Diffraction?
We were using this technique in the late 70's.  It worked very well then and should do the same now.  John Dunlavy used this alot in his speakers. You might take a look at some of his speakers for some idea's.  
Found the bass culprit in my monitor speakers...
@audiodavA lot of good comments, I am not familiar with your speakers, but I assume that you have sealed box woofers, the comments are reflecting such. I would recommend that you do a search and read about the spec called QTC. This spec reflects t... 
Used Pre under $8K with lowest nosie floor(?)
Spread Spectrum Technologies (SST) Ambrosia.... Find any review,  I've sat in front of this and compared with many.... Around $3000 used around $10,000 new or $7500 new without phono.  Excellent phono by the way,  Excellent headphone amp,  balance... 
Luxman 505ux vs. Belles Aria
I've never heard these 2 amps with anywhere near the same equipment and listening was months apart,  but my general feeling is that they would be very close.  As good as the Luxman is,  once the Belles has been online with a signal through it for ... 
The better amp?
@joser9616 Problem is,  there is not straight answer. I have several different op amps at home now, including the 21#4.  I've listened to the 6120A2 driving headphones with good results,  but I've never used it.  The 2134 is a versatile op amp,  i... 
2000-2500 USD budget for an integrated amplifier. Do amplifiers sound the same? :)
If you want to stay with solid state,  I'd take a look at a Hegel H160.  You should find one in your price range.... Why the Hegel,  Sounds different than your Cambridge or the Rotel.  For my test,  better with your Klipsch.  
Replacing caps on crossovers?
@musichead If you can't get a schematic,  as Erik mentioned,  the biggest improvement is replacing the series caps (in positive lead).... It was mentioned to get rid of the Solens... These are only a decent cap,  fairly neutral,they don't do anyth... 
Vincent Audio SV-500 Arriving Today
Dacs also need burn in, it will also change character over time, but it most likely will not be as dramatic as the tubes in the pre or amp section 
Vincent Audio SV-500 Arriving Today
I highly suggest that you put something on that Vincent and leave it playing for 24 hours through its DAC to get a fair comparison.  If you want to move away from that, I agree that the Rotel RA-1592 is a huge value and a nice sounding unit.  If y...
